ITURRIAGA, Manuel Rariano de (e-toot-e-ah'-ga), Mexican clergyman, born in Puebla de Los Angeles, Mexico, 24 December, 1728; died in Italy about 1814. He mitered the Society of Jesus in 1744, and became professor of rhetoric, philosophy, and theology in Guatemala and Puebla. After the expulsion of the society in 1767 he went to Italy, where bishops from every part of Europe con-suited him on theology. He was one of the most voluminous of writers, and published works, in Spanish, Latin, and Italian, on religion, philosophy, and general literature. He translated into Spanish most of the dramas of Metastasio, as well as some of the masterpieces of the French stage. His works published before he was banished from America are "El Dolor Rey: Pompa fenebre con que la Ciudad de Guatemala ore la Memoria de la Senora Dona Maria Barbara de Portugal, Reina de Espana" (Guatemala, 1759) and "Oration fenebre pronunciada en la Catedral de Guatemala en elogio de la espresada Reina" (1759). A full list of Iturriaga's works will be found in Backer's "Bibliotheque des derivains de la Compagnie de Jesus" (2d series, Liege, 1854).
